Description


Beautiful and rarely seen Christmas card from 1931, measuring 5 x 7.5 closed, featuring a colorful print of Mickey Mouse, Pluto, Clarabelle Cow, and Horace Horsecollar serenading Minnie Mouse with Christmas carols, beautifully signed below the print in fountain pen by Walt Disney, "Lilly & Walt Disney." A Star of Bethlehem image and the text "Yoo Hoo!" are printed on the front, and the left side of the card features a pre-printed sentiment offering seasonal good wishes, "A Merry Christmas and a happy New Year." In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope addressed in Disney's own hand to a Miss Fischer of Kansas City, postmarked December 23, 1931.

This appealing and unusual greeting features two of Disney's most famous creations—Mickey and Minnie—and holds the distinction of being just the second Christmas card issued by the Disney Studio. The following year on November 18, 1932, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presented an Honorable Mention Oscar award to Walt Disney Productions for 'Distinctive Achievement' for the creation of Mickey Mouse, who had debuted just four years earlier. A tremendously desirable early Mickey Mouse piece signed by the character's creator.
